Special Considerations For Alaska Servicemembers Getting Divorced
Under the law, active military personnel stationed in Alaska are provided special protections not given to civilians when it comes to divorce and other family law matters, such as child support or alimony.
A Vital Protection: The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA)
Under the SCRA, military personnel deployed or on active duty who are served with divorce papers can petition the court to stay or halt the proceedings until they can fully respond.
Other aspects of family law also affect military servicemembers. Specific rules often pertain to:
- Military pensions
- Medical benefits
- Housing allowances
- Child custody and visitation
- Spousal support requirements or options
